 Thanks for clearing this up.  Given that every upload to wheezy would
have a higher version (given our versioning schema) this might look
strange that people stick with the "bpo" version after the upgrade, but
me thinks that's acceptable, given that it's technicly the same code.
Also, there doesn't seem to be any dependency differences between the
squeeze-backports version and the wheezy version, so I guess this is a
lucky case of being an arch:all package.
